About The Book
New from the Bathroom Reader: a grand slam, hole-in-one, hat trick collection of sports lore and trivia.
Hey, sports fans: Sports Spectacular is bigger and better than ever! The not-so-dumb jocks at the BRI have packed in all the best sports and games articles from the wildly successful Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader series--and then bulked the whole thing up with more than 50 fan-tastic new pages. So place the ball on the tee, square up to the basket, and make sure your laces are laced tight, because it’s time to throw the dice through the goalposts for a home run! You’ll feel the thrill of victory and laugh at the agony of defeat as you read about…
* The origins of all the major sports (and a bunch of minor ones)
* Classic games, from poker and pinball to Monopoly and Donkey Kong
* How to play bathroom blackjack
* The world’s worst matador
* The Goodyear Blimp
* Mascots gone wild
* Olympic scandals
* NASCAR’s illegal origins
* Dodging the cow pies when you play pasture golf
* Finnish wife-carrying, gerbil racing, flagpole sitting, and other bizarre sports
And much, much more!
